Better Know a Guest: October 21- 24, 2013

The Colbert Report Guest Line Up Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

It looks like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show will have some interesting topics this week, particularly now that the government shutdown is over (wooh!).  Is there anything that’s happened over their break that you all hope they cover?  Stephen’s guests for the week are the band Arcade Fire, biographer A. Scott Berg, PBS anchors Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff, and actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television and radio presenter, film director, and activist Stephen Fry (finally!).

The Colbert Report Guest Line UpSing out, Hubsters!

For Stephen and guests will sing.
Let STE-E-EPHEN and his guests sing!

Yes, Hubsters, we’re getting a week filled with music—and more. We Jews probably won’t be blessed enough to have Mr. Colbert rock a couple of verses of “Dreidel, Dreidel,” although there IS one guest who should probably pick something a little more Kosher. (Keep in mind, I realize that NO ONE can actually “rock” “Dreidel.”) But I’m no Scrooge, so no complaints here about what should be yet another extraordinary and special group of episodes. And not only has a schedule of visitors been posted, but the song each particular person/group of people will perform.

This should be the last week of shows prior to the holiday break–and it’s ending with a favorite of mine, a non-religious song composed by one of my idols.

Let’s get ready to CAROL! Continue reading
